Most up to date picture of the rules I have. We all agreed on this, yet?
Actually, this is the most up to date one.
Ok this is the official rules of the website board, I want everyone to weigh in as you arrive and come to a new conclusion, don't hold anything back, remember we're all friends here <3
Why no generals? Sometimes generals produce good discussions. Take /sg/ for example.
Generals nose dived both /pol/ and /mlp/. I was a part of the rule making threads, we had a strawpoll with over 200 people. 70% voted No permanent generals (except draw threads) but if a current event is happening, it's totally fine to start a happening thread on it.
I see no "category" here
if something becomes a popular enough topic it can get it's own board, we don't need the board to all fly at ten billion posts an hour we just need to be comfy
take it slow for now, if we ever evolve big enough to need more boards, we will know when the time is right
This is our own clay. We can put Rule 10 on the books.
You need to create a few more boards. I suggest a mlpol and a mlponly for starters.
I believe there are too many boards - take out the sidebar to the left, and made "Random" the only board - /mlpol/
This. I don't think segmenting the community is a good idea. I don't think we'll run into any problems using just one board. If we do, we can always segment later.
This. Maybe we could have a meta board, but I doubt this place will be going that fast.
what about species mixing?
Ok, maybe, just maybe we should create a separate board for NSFW stuff. Now, if we do ever get shilled or something, we could flood the main board, but i think there are still quite a few people from /pol/ who don't like the r34 shit, but still want to be part of /mlpol/.
It's an interesting question because if you use nature, /pol/ or MLP:FIM as a reference the answer is no?
But, a person using their imagination doesn't destroy real world society.
I hadn't considered that, are you one of those people? Are there any /pol/acks reading this who would prefer if the disgusting degeneracy took place in its own corner?
a seperate board for porn threads, and on the main board, porn only allowed when spamming in a shill thread? it's a good plan but i think there should be a few porn threads up on the main board at any given time to help scare normies away.
but see rule 3.
IMO a main thread is all we need for now, we can worry about splitting it up if/when it gets to crowded; atm there's no where near enough activity to justify a split.
I fear low population like always. If the porn threads are crowding out the political threads then maybe it should be considered, but right now we're so low pop that it's not an issue.
a valid arguement. i was talking about further down the road anyway.
Is there a way to activate the preview bubbles when you hover over a post link?
not yet. i think they're working on it.
Admin is fucking retarded
Admin edit: That's mean :'c
The porn keeps the normies out and we're actually pretty restrained about it. Real talk usually doesn't get porn spammed, but crappy threads do.
I think a porn shield is good, we could have dedicated "clop generals"
And only allow porn images to be posted by op in a thread
Not too much that the site goes degenerate, but enough so the dimwitted normies leave us alone
>>147>only allow porn threads to be posted by OP in the thread
that's just stupid. i agree that there should be a couple/few dedicated porn threads, but i disagree about it not being posted elsewhere as long as it doesn't get out of hand.
NO GENERALS! They're the slow poison that ultimately turned /mlp/ into a sick old man. I don't think you'd be any worse off if you replaced a general with a thread dedicated to a specific topic of that general's nature. If the discussion naturally drifts to more, uh, general topics, then that's fine.
i would suggest we replace the OP picture with >>12122, since this is a more refined version
Is there any way to change to a picture captcha rather than words. It slows people down and personally it takes me three goes to get it correct.
I would prefer not to have the left side are all. Put it along the top like everywhere else.
i personally prefer words over pictures, the picture captchas usually take me 3-4 tries because they dont work properly or are poorly photographed.
Not much I can do about the captcha, but hopefully tonight I will be able to get us a better layout.
THX. Once the layout looks more familiar the bigger the crowd we can get.
I'm the opposite. The picture captcha can sometimes take a whole minute to complete. Especially when it keeps asking you for more and more images.
If you guys want to make changes to the rules picture, then here's the .psd (Photoshop) file:https://ufile.io/31846
I read the preamble like it was the school house rock song in my head.
Is the /CPD/ allowed?
seasonal thread happens durning the summer and post at night
I agree, we need the clop threads and I don't say that because I want to fap. They do keep normies repelled and our skin thick.
As a compromise I propose that a rule should be added that all porn threads must contain subject keywords so those opposed to it can easily filter them out. Additionally, porn can only be posted in those threads. Which words? We should debate that as a community. I suggest "Oven Fresh" be used. Let admins and mods deal with shills and bots, they have ban hammers. Clop can be the deterrent and primary defense.
True a normie could setup the filter too but by then, they've actually learned the board and maybe lurked while taking a few redpills. Besides, if they fuckup they can get banned.
A clop a day keeps T_D away.
Any chance of getting an image expansion on mouse hover feature in the future?
It would be much appreciated.
that's already been implimented.
Thanks muchly for the info.
I'm so thankful for what we have here... We will persist in the war against war against Marxism, T_D, and Kike Mods! HAIL VICTORY!!
I strongly suggest since /mlpol/ is now almost entirely in one place we revise the rules formally.
Our purpose is to create a comfy board with genuine political discussions and cute ponies, while repelling shills and reddit.
As such, our policies should reflect this endevour to protect our core interests.
Can I make a suggestion? I saw a YLYL thread in here earlier. I don't know if it was genuine or just one of the garbage threads /jp/ was shilling, but I think either way it's something we should nix early on. Humor threads should be allowed, but it should be called "/mlpol/ humor", "funny images thread", "lol thread", or something to that effect, and the humor should be more or less on-topic (either /pol/ related or /mlp/ related).
YLYL is pretty much synonymous with cancer across 4chan. Even if quality content is being posted in the beginning, just establishing the precedent of referring to it as YLYL is opening the door for decades-old unfunny off-topic memes, banana/cucumber/whatever the current vegetable is cancer, and general faggotry of all shapes and sizes. As soon as you start seeing YLYL threads on a board with any regularity, that's how you know the board is in a death spiral. I watched it happen with /pol/.
This is understandable.
If we allow generic ylyl threads then this place become essentially just another random board.
At the same time humor threads are part of old /pol/ culture (I assume mlp as well)
As such they should be allowed so long as they are on topic
Sorry, what was the thing with e-celebs again?
Absolutely, I love on-topic humor threads and I would wholeheartedly encourage them here, it just seems like something about the term "YLYL" just immediately causes post quality to decline. For a while on /pol/ we had "/pol/ humor threads" and those were generally funny. Then it was "/pol/ ylyl", and at first it was the same type of humor as the /pol/ humor threads, but after a while normal YLYL shit started creeping its way in, stuff that had nothing to do with politics or board memes or anything that could even be construed as /pol/ related. Eventually I started seeing YLYL threads without the word /pol/ appearing anywhere, and it was literally the same type of cancer you get on /b/.>>170
/pol/ has a serious problem lately with threads clogging up the board discussing whether certain YouTubers are redpilled or not, or whether or not such-and-such is "/ourguy/". For a long time there were multiple daily threads discussing whether or not PewDiePie is a Nazi (there may still be for all I know, I haven't honestly been back there since April 1). The threads don't really go anywhere other than to give attention to e-celebs who frankly get more attention than they deserve already. I think linking to specific videos in order to launch a discussion about the video itself or the topic is fine, but discussion of e-celebs themselves is just gossipy and juvenile and doesn't seem to go anywhere.
This, plus on the /pone/ side it means the annalist community at large, youtubers like Blank Slate or KP that are overdue for a visit to the >chamber
to be quite honest HWNDU was quite funny
if it gets people to do some field work and assert their dominance over a hollywood shill in public, i personally dont mind it.
e-celeb stuff deserves maybe one or two threads at the MOST, but I remember it being all over the place every time Pewdiepie made a video mentioning hitler, or Jontron doing another stream.
E-celeb is cancer. If people want that stuff then move on. If people during a thread want to recommend that is fine. Nearly all metubers are narcissistic cunts anyway.
I agree but the messing up and stealing of Shias flag was a lot of keks
He is not really a e-celeb but still a celeb and not really object of political discussion
so this is kinda difficult rulewise
I tried to make it to the farm in time to raise this flag but i was too late
You are right. I am #altbrony and I don't like degeneracy spreading. That's very zionist and lefty.
In fact I do t care of private fetishes among people but spreading it instead of spreading a Volkish message is counterproductive for the movement
I understand that ecelebs who become a meme are troublesome, like Mainstream METOR and Varg posting.
However, certain e-celebs are really /ourecelebs/. Millennial Woes for example. i think its not a problem having threads about individuals who are important to our movement.
